Life is Like… (Poetry)

Life is like a book,

     At the turn of pages

          A chapter is unfolded.

Life is like a battle

     You must give your everything

          In order to win the big fight.

Life is like a journey

     With more steps you make

          The end comes near.


Day of Protest (Poetry)

Today marks a historical day

That we’ll never forget any way

Because it has become part of past

From which learning lessons is a must.

Today, in commemoration

Of history of our nation,

A Day of Protest was declared

That all grievances may be aired.

If only my own cries can be heard 

If making protests won’t be so weird

Is there really someone who cares

For the people who live like paupers?

Not Alone After All (Poetry)

Is it merely coincidence or is it my fate

That I have been struggling very hard as of late?

But I do not think I am suffering alone

From such a harsh life that I seemed to have been born.

All around me, people sigh and can’t help but groan
At how diff’cult life was for everyone, they moan

Listening to them complain and talk about it

Somewhat pacifies me and comforts me a bit

For then I felt God has not forsaken me yet

And the thought bolstered my once discouraged spirit.
